I've been around a parking lot once or twice -- no, it was definitely
twice -- and I ran 40psi on my stock suspension, stock wheels
200 TQ. This was recommended to me before the start. The car
plowed (ploughed for the Brits) big time on the too-tight too-fast-
into-it corners. It was later recommended I go up to 45psi. The rears
can be a little (2-3psi) lower.

Of course, you'll probably see this too late for Sunday, since I'm on the
digest, and was busy today. (Golf in NH during foliage season -- it doesn't
get much better than that.  Especially when the Audi is running and can
get you there.)
